Eat A Tasty Animal for PETA Day (EATAPETA)

Ingrid Newkirk's PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) claims to be an animal rights group, but their outrageous headline-grabbing tactics are rarely more than criminal thuggery laced with fits of blatant bloody-handed hypocrisy.

In response to the "Holocaust On Your Plate" media campaign that mocked the Holocaust, blogger Meryl Yourish responded with "Eat A Tasty Animal For PETA Day" (EATAPETA) campaign on March 15, 2003. Bloggers and non-bloggers are invited to revolt against PETA's ham-fisted tactics by eating animals on this day.

This year will be the Fifth Annual International Eat an Animal for Peta Day.

So, how can you join in the fun?

Sure, you can eat animal food products all by your lonesome, but you are encouraged to organize and promote your own gathering place to celebrate the carnivore side of your omnivorous nature.

I intend to organise a BBQ at home with some close friends. On the menu will be Prawns (Hey, I'm an Aussie so apparently I have to have crustaceans on the BBQ), lamb chops, Pork chops and rump steak. My wife will make up an egg salad.

That covers seafood, sheep, pigs, cows and chickens. I think I'll act like Noah and have two of every animal ..........

Just watched Penn & Teller's take on PETA on youtube.

I am all for the ethical treatment of animals, but I cannot say I agree that NO animals should be pets!!!

People that abuse animals should be charged with animal abuse. And people that fire bomb labs, etc should be charged with whatever laws they break.

I guess I wouldn't care as much if PETA wasn't so two-faced! But PETA has been caught several times killing some cases animals they "rescued" from people's back yards!!!

I haven't seen the P&T take on PETA yet, but hopefully I'll find the time over the weekend.

I wonder if some of these animal "rescues" that they perform are done in the dead of the night?
